The S&H 2 Bore, also known as S&H 2 Bore Black Powder Express, is a big game hunting cartridge developed and produced by Schroeder & Hetzendorfer.
It is a black powder express cartridge designed from the ground up with a proprietary case as a "true 2 bore" cartridge, that is, in the context of the number of round balls the size of the bore that are needed to make 1 pound (0.45 kilograms). The casing is CNC machined in a high precision, heavy duty design for chambered black powder rifles.
It can accommodate a mammoth 3,500 grain (226.80 grams or a half-pound) solid brass FNTC bullet that fires at a muzzle velocity of 1,500 feet per second with a muzzle energy of 17,487 ft-lbf (23,709.1885 J). This makes for immense recoil. The case could also accommodate a 3,350 grain (217 grams) lead ball that fires at a muzzle velocity 1,200 feet per second.
